Ironically, the tales of fantasy and the supernatural collected in the volume The Isles of Sunset, which would become some of Arthur Christopher Benson's best-known work, were probably never intended for publication. Found by his brothers after Arthur's death, it is believed that he penned these tales as moral parables for his students at Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he served as master.

“A recollection of memories that can only be understood through the imperfection of time ... a memoir about learning, being wrong just as many times as right, and growing as a constant process. A piece of life in words ... a revealing, honest work.” — Celia Peris-Peris, PhD Men who voted for George W. Bush don’t fit the mold of your typical Peace Corps volunteer. But Taylor Dibbert isn’t your typical anything. Born and raised in Dallas, Dibbert lived far away from the third world countries he saw on the news. Yet something called to him, and so from 2006–2008, Dibbert lived in a small, indigenous village in Guatemala, after unpredictably joining the Peace Corps. Fiesta of Sunset tells not only of the adventures of a far off land; it also provides a closer look into the back alleys and sad streets of a country struggling with poverty, corruption, crime and more. Some of the mysterious and romantic stereotypes of the Peace Corps are set to rest in this engaging example of one young American’s experience abroad and how, while there, he began to learn how mistakes often pave the path to understanding. Ultimately the Peace Corps is about empowerment, helping the world’s poor help themselves. But there’s something more that JFK left out of his groundbreaking Peace Corps speech. Personal growth lies at the heart of the volunteer experience. As the Peace Corps celebrates its historic 50th anniversary, this uniquely compelling book reminds us that the organization’s mission is more relevant now than ever.

Tropical sun, cheap booze and more natural beauty than you could shake David Attenborough at, Kim came to Los Acazares for the same reasons as all the other people who are stuck out here. She had to get away. Los Alcazares is a holiday paradise. It’s also a place of fantastic dreams and incredible secrets, an island in the ocean where ley lines cross and tectonic crash, a geological hot spot where you can’t trust anything – not even the earth itself. Kim trusts Matthew, her lover. She trusts Stella, her friend. But she may have been wrong. A man has been killed on Los Alcazares and both of them were there when he died. That’s what they’re saying anyway; but the island is full of talk. At the beach bar where there is no beach, Kim waits for Matthew to find out finally what she can believe. ‘Brayfield is a fine prose stylist; her characterisation is good, as is the sense of place’ Sunday Times

This is a broad survey of the history of the British Empire from its beginnings to its demise. It offers a comprehensive analysis not just of political events and territorial conquests but paints a picture of what life was like under colonial rule, both for those who ruled and for those whose countries came under British authority. There has been a lively debate in recent years about whether empires generally are good or bad things, and the British Empire has been very much at the centre of that debate, with a number of voices arguing that it was a kinder, gentler Empire than its rivals. This book speaks specifically to that debate, and also to a second and equally vigorous debate about whether anyone in Britain actually cared about the possession of an Empire.
